Second digging site of the three-day trip – in central Washington. Looking for dessicated opal! We hauled in a BIG one…check the album for all the pictures.
Chiseling out fluorite geodes at the Rock Candy Mine in British Columbia, owned by our guide, Bob Jackson. He led an awesome trip! Boys were so excited the whole time despite long days and drives.
Ben loved digging up big fluorite crystals.
Both boys in a vug looking for rare barite crystals!
In a little vug working together for a long time!
Sam captured a great fluorite octahedron with Bob as mentor!
900 miles, 70 pounds of rocks, tubing on the Methow River, and beautiful scenery listening to a rockin’ mix of Led Zep, Stones, Beatles, Cream, Creedence and more made by Daddy. What could be better? (Not much, but perhaps if Daddy could have come along as well!)
